“Best Vacay Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

This was a great place to stay with our two pups...a chihuahua shih-tzu and yes a 75lbs pit-bull mix...this was a true "Dog Friendly" place to stay. Everyone here was great, super friendly staff and friendly dogs too. We had a great relaxing time. Our room was great, the other guest were great. Very clean and neat just wonderful. If you are looking for a place to stay for a nice get away from the real world and want to bring your pets I highly highly recommend this place, this is will for sure be our new vacay spot for our little furry family.

Room Tip: We had a suite with a full kitchen great for longer stays (we were there for 4 nights so this came i...

I've stayed at many dog friendly hotels, but the Dog Spa Resort was the absolute best!! I loved that my dog was able to walk around the whole property without a leash. It was safe in every area. A very relaxing atmosphere.

Couldn't have had a better time with my little Yorkie.....and that's what it was all about. There’s something about being in the pool....very powerful bonding. Zsa Zsa had a little life jacket and she loved the rafts the Spa provided. She wasn't dealing well with pollen allergies at home, so being constantly cooled off and away from the pollen was heaven-sent for her. During our visit there were Labs and other large breeds as well as four Yorkies……and they all got along famously. Not one little doggie spat. Rooms were so clean you could eat off the floor. Everything was so fresh and clean. The Spa provides a wonderful and comfty dog bed....the human-sized bed was great, too. And there are lots of beach towels by the pool. The idea of being totally leash free and safe was such a wonderful thing. We felt at home, thanks to the owners/staff....welcoming and friendly. The sunset in the back area by the firepit was just lovely. Had a wonderful time, still telling friends about it.....and will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: This is a small place.....and ALL the rooms are great. I prefer the ones on the ground level, steps...

We came here a few weeks ago and had a great time. Everyone was wonderful, Paula and her team do a great job of making you feel welcomed. We stayed in the wellness rooms which were very comfortable the pool and hot tub were amazing and the dog run area was great for the dogs.

Looking forward to visiting again.

We had a great time staying here for several days. Our dogs Barney an Opie loved it. Not the best water dogs, but pool cooled them off well and got to play with the other dogs or just slept in the sun. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Enjoyed the leash free environment. Everyone is friendly and made us feel right at home.

This was a great spot to relax and let the dogs be dogs. We were looking for a spot where we can get away from the city for a bit and chill in the desert. We really enjoyed the freedom of the spa and Bob, the inn keeper was super friendly and very welcoming. We will definitely be back. Oh yeah the dogs really had a great time.

My pup, Shiloh, and I love coming here with friends. It's a great place to relax, play with your dog and just unwind. The DogSpa is not just a "dog friendly" hotel, it is designed for you AND your dog. The fact that it's entirely off leash says it all. We had an especially nice time hanging out in the lounge watching movies or sitting outside watching the sunset in front of the fire pit. All the while, I was able to toss the ball for Shiloh. Love this place!

Room Tip: If you have more than one party, definitely get the rooms with the adjoining kitchen!
